Beginning Monday, October 5th, students attending in-person instruction will now do so five days per week. Students enrolled in our online Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) may remain in the program. Our staff has encountered challenges to support students choosing the online option. Because of this, we will be providing extra VLA planning and support time during the workday for teachers by adjusting our students’ dismissal time. Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade attending in-person five days per week will be dismissed forty-five (45) minutes early. The students’ school day schedule will be as follows:
- BC Middle & High Schools (Grades 5-12): 7:30 a.m. - 1:25 p.m.
- BC Intermediate School (Grades 3-4): 8:45 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
- BC Primary School (Grades K-2): 9:00 a.m. - 2:50 p.m.
The adjustment to our “Green Status” with modified release times provides our students attending in-person instruction to receive several more hours of instruction Monday through Friday. It also provides our teachers daily with the time they need to support our online students, and allows for additional cleaning and disinfecting of our buildings.
